Conclusion Nurses can continue to evolve into people who is not only a person who advocates for patients and is caring and empathetic, but those that can improve the quality of care that is required for the advancement of healthcare as a whole. Technology is at the forefront of innovation and the nurse of today plays an important role in not only learning how to best use technology but also how to teach and be the innovators of new technology to come. Nurses have evolved into these knowledge workers through increased education, increased use of evidence and participating in more than performing simple patient tasks. Successful organizations are allowing nurses to be a part of their growth and in return nurses are reaping the benefits of working for these organizations.
Enclosed you will find my proposal to increase educational resources for aspiring nurses. In preparing this report, I have learned that our need for nurses continues to grow above normal.

This turning point in history has given us the ability to develop a career that will have lifelong benefits into retirement. Midwifes may now be employed by large healthcare systems that offer many financial benefits unobtainable from a private in the home birthing practice.

Overall, turning points in history will continue to shape how nurse midwifery is delivered to women. We as providers need to strive to empower women to take control of their experiences while providing them a safe and successful child birthing experience that decreases the maternal and infant mortality rate.

Educators must be lifelong learners, and flexible enough to adapt curriculum and teaching methods in response to innovations in nursing science and ongoing changes in the practice environment” (Bartels, J., Jan. 2005). It is a role that Florence Nightingale, who is so ahead of her time, has envisioned for nurses so long ago. In one of her excerpts, she summarized: “Training is to teach a nurse her business, that is, to observe exactly, to understand, to know exactly, to do, to tell exactly, in such stupendous issues as life and death, health and disease. Training is to enable a nurse to act for the best in carrying out her orders, not as a machine but as a nurse; as an intelligent and responsible being”.
Organizational Assessment and Recommendation The mission statements of all health care organization are related to the restoration of optimal health to their clients. As acuity levels rise, a skilled and knowledgeable staff of registered nurses is essential to make the mission a reality. Nursing shortage is a global crisis. The new employees and new graduates present a myriad of challenges to their employees. Nurse residency program were designed to assist new graduates and help them in their transition from student life into professional life.
However, many external ... ... middle of paper ... ...ion…” It is nursing’s responsibility to keep up with these advances by ensuring nurses are well prepared for change and the ability to thrive in the field when caring for the increasingly complexity of patient needs. By increasing entry into professional practice to that of a baccalaureate level, we are building a solid foundation for nurses to move forward and advance along with the rest of the health care industry. References Linda A. Jacobs, M. J. (1998). The Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing As an Entry-Level Requirement for Professional Nursing Practice.
In today’s world there is a high demand for well qualified nurses. In the healthcare setting the nursing staff can range anywhere from a Certified Nursing Assistant to a Nurse Practitioner. What once was an acceptable level of education for nurses, is no more. Even now there is a nationwide push for nurses to be educated at the baccalaureate level or higher. So the question is, what is the best educational preparation for nurses entering the world of healthcare today?
With patient acuity on the rise, new graduate nurses that are filling these vacancies in the hospitals, need to be competent nurses to provide proper and safe care to the patients. This article researched the competency of new graduate nurses. “Nursing competence is not only a professional standard described by the American Nurses Association but also a Joint Commission requirement” (Theisen & Sandau, 2013). Competency is defined as the ability to do something successfully or efficiently; however, educators believe competency extends beyond skills. There is a strong push for nurse residency programs or nursing orientation programs.
Learning Strategies and Methods: A Reflection As I look back upon this course, and the RN-BSN completion program as a whole, I am reminded that this is a process. There will be challenges and victories. I feel that each is meant to teach me something during this journey toward furthering my nursing education. I have always thought that as nurse, it was important to keep current with evidence based research, but returning to the formal school setting was a big step. As stated by Hood (2010) “A professional nurse should expect to commit to a life of continuous learning, growth, and development” (p.30).
